I thought you all might be interested in seeing an "in progress". Here, i've pretty much completed the face and laid in all the basic shapes and flat colors. Next step is to add highlights (there won't be much, since it's night) and details. Enjoy!
For my final digital illustration project, we got to propose what we wanted to do to our teacher. So, why not kill two birds with one stone (bad pun!) and get my christmas cards done at the same time? This is the first one of the four that I have to do...I made a little clay cardinal (see below), combine a couple photos for the background, drew my own twigs, etc... I wanted to keep it pretty simple.
It's interesting to see how much the little clay model changes in the final product, isn't it?
If anyone's interested in some custom holiday cards, let me know!

Nicole is a character that is loosely (or not so loosely) based off my cousin, Nicole. I created a "snow" effect with white washcloths on top of my stove...Keep checking back for a colored version and more photos soon!
